    It's been a long while since I was last there; if they still have the cataplana, you could take a look.

      still on the menu and still as good!

      Otherwise, the black cod is excellent as well

        Agree on the Cataplana. I had the clam version this Summer and it was superb. When I got home, I made it myself and it was just as good.

      Sorry I could not answer in time. Aug. 6, 2011: big disappointment. Nice decor, good atmosphere but the Cataplana with pork abnd clams was a disaster. Uncooked; tough pork, clams hard to pick out of the shell. The broth was good, though... Way far too pricey for what it was.

        This is really surprising... what night of the week did you go and did you say anything to the server? I have reservations toniught and hope we'll do better.

        Can anyone give me a rough idea of price range for three-course meal, two people with wine?

        Can we do it for under $200 - starter-salad-amuses-bouche + app + entree + side(s) + dessert + 1/2 glasses of wine -- x2 people?

          I have a recent copy of their menu. Prices are

          Soups and Salads $10-12
          Appetizers $10-19
          Sides $6-8
          Classics $31-46
          Suggestions - $30-49

          Hope this helps!

            Yeah that's perfect, thanks!

            I spent over $300 at CCeP this past weekend for two and don't want to do that again tonight. Looks like we can eat very well for around $200 + wine for two.
